E. Ii. Coleman, the man sent up from
Greenwood, this county, to tbeLincolu
asylum some six weeks ago, died last
week and the remains were taken to
his former home at Greenwood and in
terred. Andrew Kern, one of Cass county's
prosperous farmers, was in town Sat
day and remembered The Journal
with a call. Mr. Kern was sixty
three years old Saturday, but doesn't
look it by at least ten years.
Christian Gauer, the well-known
German farmer, living in the vicinity
of Cedar Creek, expects to leave next
week for a visit to the old country.
He expects to be absent for some time
and will thoroughly enjoy his trip:
Messrs. W. R. Iiildwin and A.
Weldou, two of Salt Creek's most pro
gressive farmers, were in the city Satur
day looking after the sale of some
farm realty belonging to an estate for
which Mr. Baldwin is executor.
John, the seventeen-year old son
of Jos. Lloyd, the 11. & M. engineer,
had the misfortune to break his collar
lone on the right side Sunday evening.
The lad was riding a pony and ran
into a cow while sending the pony
along at a rather rapid gait. The boy
was thrown to the ground with re
sults as above stated.
It might he well for Polk's 2sews to
thoroughly investigate before printing
depressive and unauthentic stories
"about the 1. :! railroad shops shutting
down to live liniiis per day and four
days in th- week. Very happily the
tale n't bused on positive informa

00 Ii is believed that A. M. BlazeU. a
cooper, wlm luvsterionslv disappeared
from his Lome in South Omaha last
April, leaving money due him for
wages, his tools and clothing, was
drowned in the Missouri river and
that it was his body that was found by
the Nebraska City authorities, July 4,
floating in a hnde condition down the
river. Blazek's parents reside at
Cedar Rapids, la.
A great deal of seining has been
done in Salt Creek, near Ashland, of
late and the authorities have decided
to put a stop to it. Fish Commission
ers May of Omaha and Oakley of Lin
coln were in Ashland last week look
ing alter the matter. On Saturday
last the trial of J . C. Simmons, Jack
Hobbins and M. English for seining
in Salt creek, was held and each fined

The B. & M. has had another fit of
economy and the result is that all
brakemen on the south passenger
trains on the Beatrice branch have
been laid off. The force of section
men has been cut down everywhere
and reductions will be made in other
departments until the officials feel
that they have cut their forces down
as small as they cau and still be able
to operate their trains. Nebraska
A swarm of bees, which tlew across
the river from Iowa, furnished a
rather novel scene on lower Main
street on Monday. They settled in
front of Gorder's implement store, and
at once there was a hurry on the part
of bystandeisto secure a box, so that
they could claim the bees. Joe Rakes
arrived first with his box, and after
some trouble Induced the bees to enter.
A hive of bees is worth a neat sum of
coin, and Rakes is ahead just that
much without being out much in the
way of time.

Sunday morniDg about 1 o'clock,
as Burlington train No. 4 was pulling
into the yards at Iloldrege. it ran into
an open switch. The engine and ten
der were overturned and both were
badly wrecked. The baggage and mail j
cars were both somewhat damaged.
George Oyster, the engineer, jumped
but fell, and the engine toppled over
on him, pinning him to the ground.
After some trouble he was released
from his painful position, when it was
discovered that one leg was broken at
the ankle and the muscles on the same
leg torn loose at the knee. It was a
very close call for him. The fireman
escaped with a slight injury. At pres
ent it is not known how the switch
came to be open. The wrecking crew
were at work all day yesterday clear
ing up the wreck.

The strike among the butchers last
Monday at the South Omaha packing
houses has well-nigh paralyzed the
cattle and hog market, there being
little cr no demand for the animals.
The butchers claim that their wages
have been unjustly cut, and that at
other packing centers the wages re
main the same as before. The packers
appear confident that they will be able
to secure enough men to take the
places of the strikers in a very short
time, and that they will soon be run
ning at full blast. In the meantime
shippers will be a trifle chary of send
ing live stock to South Omaha.

then, however, the circulation com

who resented such uu crai ranted abuse

The firemen on the Wyoming divis

with a rapidity that awes them. Thus

five firemen were discharged at Chey

the latestrike. Aside fioiu the fire
men thirty engineeis ai i five conduc
